Re: Spanish tennis federation planning to sue French TV broadcaster Canal+

they made fun of Mauresmo a few years ago.It's offensive but they need to get the fuck over it

Melania Trump who is not qualified to shine Michelle Obama's shoes might very well be the first semi-literate AND vapid First Lady of the US

Re: Spanish tennis federation planning to sue French TV broadcaster Canal+

they've just motivated rafa to take another FO

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

I'm sure this will help Nadull gain the Frenchies' support. Hope they show their appreciation as only the French can. That's why I love RG.

Not a chance they'll follow through.

What happens if Canal+ calls Fuentes to testify?

It seems people can't read. This is not a serious show. People don't take this seriously. Is it that hard?
The lawsuit is for using the Spanish Tennis Federation logo.

Sketches like this are nothing new. I think 2DTV did a Greg Rusedski sketch a few years ago. Nadal has never been caught so he is innocent. If Nadal was taking something they would surely have caught him by now. People should leave the guy alone. This is coming from a Nadal hater by the way.

Re: Spanish tennis federation planning to sue French TV broadcaster Canal+

Doping is a criminal offense in France and other countries. Accusing persistently someone of committing a criminal offense without any type of evidence is morally and legally unacceptable in a civilized country, more if they are doing that against a neighbor and EU partner.

Today this TV show have gone beyond and they show several Spaniards sportmen (Nadal, Gasol and Casillas) signing autographs with a syringe.

[youtube]DBAck5xQQ30[/youtube]

The conclusion of these videos is that Spaniards are so successful in sport because they are doped. There can't be any other explanation. Although I'm a a Nadal's fan, I have to say that choose Casillas and Gasol for allege some doping issue in Spanish sport is laughable. Both are best known for his technical skills than for his physical talent. And that's something they don't want to accept in France:

1) Spain has more talented/skilled athletes right now

2) Spain doesn't need to buy African talent to shine

Why Spanish NT has won the latest soccer world championship? Physically they are average (France NT is stronger in fact), but technically they are the best team. Spanis NT bullied their oponents at the tactical and technical level, not physically.

Why the Spanish are so good for example in basketball? Because they are a great team full of talent. France have a good basketball team too... which excel in the phisycal department thanks they have some blacks dudes.

Maybe frenchies think that talent can be manufactured in a laboratory but they are wrong. At least in most sports. In any case it would be good for the sport if they gave utterance aside his proverbial chauvinism and enjoy more the show that the Spaniards are providing them, but instead they have chosen to show themselves to the world as sour grapes losers.

All that said IMO Spain can do a better job in the fight against doping.

PS: What kind of drugs must be taken in order to doing this in a bball court?

In Spain we would take this as a joke, but there are too many recent precedents and persistence from the French media over this issue. Right now all this sounds as a orchestrated campaign to us. I can understand some criticism, I can even agree with them that are somewhat deserved, but we don't understand the sensationalistic and simplistic aproach they are following. 'The Sun' looks like a serious newspaper compared with 'Le Monde' right now. Too much childish tamtrums from the French media.
